Victoria Monét Shines in 2024 BET Awards Debut With Performances of ‘On My Mama’ And ‘Alright’

At long last, Victoria Monét finally brought her Jaguar magic to the BET Awards main stage!

She then took things ‘to the future’ with producer Kaytranada on the ones and twos, performing her latest bubbling hit, ‘Alright’, with a pop-icon-influenced set inspired by the track’s music video.

Monét’s highly anticipated BET Awards performance comes nearly a year after she was turned down for a slot at the 2023 MTV Video Music Awards. ‘The Jaguar II’ artist told followers on X, “My team was told it is ‘too early in my story’ for that opportunity,” after fans complained about her absence from the show. This setback only fueled her determination to prove her star power.

And prove it she did. When Grammy nominations rolled out a few months later, amid her sold-out headlining tour, the triple threat emerged as the second-most nominated artist with seven whopping nods total. 

Monét took home three of her first-ever Grammy wins for Best New Artist, Best R&B Album, and Best Engineered Album, Non-Classical. Following her triumphant night, the ASCAP honoree made her Coachella debut and is set for more live performances this summer at Broccoli City Festival, Lollapalooza, and Outside Lands Festival.

In addition to her Grammy success, Victoria Monét has also been nominated across five BET Awards categories, including Album of the Year and Best Female R&B/Pop Artist. These nominations highlight her continued rise in the music industry and her growing influence.
